PGP encryption public key sent as a *.xlsx file.

I was sent a public PGP key in the form of an xlsx file. Is that file format usable in PGP?

Hi,

As far as I know, it's not usable in PGP.
The PGP keys would typically have the extension: .pgp, .asc, .txt

If the .xlsx file sent to you is indeed a PGP public key, you MAY need to rename it to one of the extensions mentioned above before you can use it. Ideal way would be to call up the sender and confirm the status.

Hope this helps.

Warm regards,
Sarang
